Sawdust Challenge - 1/4" @ 25 Yards



Log in to see fewer ads
A history lesson: When we started up the original SuperStock there were many claims about "My stock Ruger/Marlin/Savage can shoot XXX size groups all day long". We knew that some of these were hard to believe. But one man, Sawdust, figured out a way to both put a stop to the outrageous claims and to give us a way to PROVE that our rifles would shoot well. He started the 1/4" Club. He also changed RFC forever. All these games that we have so much fun with or that drive us crazy or even become an obsession started right there with Sawdust. Our tribute to the man will be The Sawdust Challenge.


The rules, then and now are simple. SSB rifles only. You shoot four 5 shot groups on the same target from a minimum of 25 yards. You also shoot 4 individual holes. These holes are measured for diameter and those 4 measurements are averaged. That average is used to subtract from the outside to outside group measurements. If that measurement is .250" or less that group is good. If you get FOUR out of FOUR you have met the Challenge...........the Sawdust Challenge.

Good luck and good shooting.

Please note:
Any target submitted must has been shot AFTER this Challenge began.

Measuring holes must be well away from the groups and positioned in such a way as to be IMPOSSIBLE to interpret as fliers.

Oh yeah, Am I glad I decided to go ahead and work on my two rifles. This is going to be fun. Maybe with the bedding on the Savage and the adj sear mod on the CZ , I' may be able to get them both in.

What a time to be low on ammo, LOL.

Well I guess I'll have to use this game as a test for the one Im putting together. You all will just have to wait a week or two for me to get it together and up and running.

Thanks Vincent. I'll be trying soon.

Hey, guys,
Notice that he started this game at night. Ol' Vince is trying to keep us from hurting ourselves.

PS: Rigger, you can order more ammo tonight. Should be here by the weekend. Besides, 510's are CHEAP!

LOL, man Bigfoot if I had the money I'd order a case. But as Uncle Murphy would have it he broke my 200 amp main breaker and totaled my central ac, roughly $2500.00 worth. So I'm waiting on a payday.

But I do have 100 rnds 510's and 50 rnds Remington Subs. Got to see what I can do with them.

Hare or the Tortoise? LOL. Will have to check the wind in the morning, but will also have to re-sight in both scopes before I can shoot. Humm and with 150 rounds, should be enough for 4 trys at either club.

Humm, rigger,

150 rnds would make me nervous with two guns, esp with the way i keep
adjusting torque values and such. and you have to re-zero in two scopes,
if was me, i would pick one and set it up and go for it. if i had a normal
"stick shift" in .22lr i would go with the rem subs. my latest batch of 510's
aint doing as well as previous batches, i have gotten. hard decision,
but we should see a few bug holes here, on this game. big diff btwn 25 & 50
yds,

rico....

i think the "ruskie" will be on the firing line shortly. shouldn't have a prob
@25 yds ?? LOL,

have a bunch of odd ball ammo that i've been wanting to try; like PMC, for one
for starters. will be fun anyway. got a bunch of mag ammo, so should be a
re-larning xperience,

rico....
